Therapy Dog

Our Therapy teams visit local nursing homes, hospitals, and group homes where people don't have the love of a pet at their disposal. 

 

We also visit schools and libraries to spread the word on proper care and management of a pet.  And because kids of all ages just like to have fun, our teams add laughs and smiles by performing tricks.

Because of Covid, our Therapy Dog is on hold as public access to most hospitals, nursing homes, and schools are closed to therapy teams at this time.  Paws crossed that this program is opened back up by fall 2021.

Reading Your Dog

Learn the key to communication between you and your canine friend.   Your therapy training will proceed more quickly and easily when you can read the way your dog is responding to your efforts.  You will learn how to listen to your dog by reading his body language.  And what is YOUR body language telling your dog?
